This year Griff Rhys-Jones and the gang will be visiting the world's first radar station in Bawdsey.

The transmitter block was built between 1937 and 1939 in the grounds of Bawdsey Manor.

It will be up against 20 other important buildings from across the country and viewers will have the final say on which one is restored to its former glory.
